I have these 3 candidates:
You really need to sit down with your favorite music and listen to them, to see which pair works the best for you. Even better would be to try them out in your work space if you can.
I've been recommended in another forum a very good reverb unit, Eventide Eclipse, but reading the specs seems it doesn't process a lot of inputs at once with different presets...
That's what the aux sends on a mixer are for, you can send audio from each channel/instrument to an effect via the aux send, then send the output of the effect back into the mixer and mix everything together. The more aux sends your mixer has the more effects you can use.
So I think I will investigate first daw reverb plugins.
I've used reaper, it's very intuitive, but I think I will use cubase or protools in the end.
You can use your DAW as a mixer provided it has enough inputs and outputs, that's how I work these days. I use logic and all my synths and effects are connected to my computer directly via my audio interface.
But all of this stuff is really secondary to what you really need, inspiration. The tools won't be any good unless you have something to say.
